The extent and causes of stress in teachers in the George region
MAJ Olivier, DJL Venter
South African Journal of Education , 2003,
Abstract: Stress is currently a phenomenon that must be recognized and addressed in various professions and the teaching profession is no exception. Stress in the workplace can cause "job compassion fatigue". In the past teachers did not consider stress to be the primary cause when they needed to escape from the school environment, but rather claimed to be overworked in such a case. Far too many teachers have to take sick leave, whilst others are leaving the profession as a result of burn-out. Some teachers lack coping mechanisms to combat excess stress effectively, and this in turn can lead to absenteeism, alcohol and drug abuse, depression, frustration, hypertension, and other serious physical conditions, such as heart disease. Knowledge about stressors could be valuable in order to avoid and / or manage factors causing stress to teachers. The purpose of this particular research project was to establish which aspects of the teaching profession are stress-related in the George area. A questionnaire, of which one section was the "Fimian Teacher Stress Inventory", was administered to 132 secondary teachers. The data were statistically processed and the results interpreted. Interesting conclusions could be drawn from the results. Recommendations for teachers to manage their stress are based on these conclusions. South African Journal of Education Vol.23(3) 2003: 186-192
The strategic importance of motivational rewards for lower-level employees in the manufacturing and retailing industries
CA Arnolds,DJL Venter
South African Journal of Industrial Psychology , 2007, DOI: 10.4102/sajip.v33i3.390
Abstract: One of the biggest challenges that managers face in executing business strategies to achieve competitive advantage, is the employment of motivational techniques that build wholehearted commitment to operating excellence. Much confusion however still exists on the question of which rewards really motivate employees. This study investigates which rewards motivate lower-level employees (N = 367) in both manufacturing and clothing retail firms. The results show that the most important individual motivational reward for blue-collar employees is paid holidays and for frontline employees, retirement plans. The most important motivational reward category for both blue-collar and frontline employees is fringe benefits (paid holidays, sick leave and housing loans).
The physical activity and health status of two generations of Black South African professional women
CM Walter, R du Randt, DJL Venter
Health SA Gesondheid , 2011,
Abstract: Increased health risks associated with physical inactivity in the Black population have been reported in recent years. Black women, suffering the highest levels of inactivity, overweight and obesity, are at greatest risk of developing chronic diseases of lifestyle. This explorativedescriptive study investigated the physical activity patterns and health status of two generations of Black professional women, reflecting pre-democracy and post-democracy age groups. Quantitative measures were used, including the ActiGraph GT1M accelerometer, the Global Physical Activity Questionnaire and the Health-Promoting Lifestyle Profile. Sample groups comprised teachers, nurses, social workers and public sector managers. Participants aged between 35 and 45 years were allocated to the older generation group (n = 111), whilst those aged between 18 and 21 years (students in the mentioned professional fields) were allocated to the younger generation group (n = 69). The results indicated that these women displayed lower levels of health-promoting behavioural practices than expected, significantly lower levels of physical activity and significantly higher levels of overweight and obesity than the South African norms. The observation that the younger group appeared to be replicating the patterns of the older women is a cause of concern. Greater compliance to health-promoting behaviours was expected in this group owing to participants’ professional involvement in health, education and social development fields. Wide-ranging initiatives are necessary to promote physical activity and health amongst the Black female population in South Africa. Gedurende die afgelope jare het navorsing onder die Swart bevolking toename in gesondheidsrisiko’s wat met fisieke onaktiwiteit geassosieer is, getoon. Swart vroue, wat die hoogste vlakke van onaktiwiteit, oorgewig en obesiteit toon, blyk ook die grootste risiko te loop om leefstylverwante chroniese siektes te ontwikkel. Hierdie ondersoekendbeskrywende studie het die fisieke aktiwiteitspatrone en gesondheidstatus van twee generasies van Swart professionele vroue ondersoek. Die tweegenerasiesteekproef verteenwoordig voor- en na-demokrasie-ouderdomsgroepe. Kwantitatiewe meetinstrumente, naamlik die ActiGraph GT1M versnellingsmeter, Globale Fisieke Aktiwiteitsvraelys en die Gesondheidsbevorderende Leefstylprofiel is gebruik. Die steekproef het onderwysers, verpleegkundiges, maatskaplike werkers en bestuurders in die openbare sektor ingesluit. Deelnemers tussen 35 en 45 jaar is aan die ouergenerasie-toetsgroep toegewys (n = 111), terwyl dié tussen 18 en 21 jaar (studente in bogenoemde studierigtings) aan die jongergenerasietoetsgroep toegewys is (n = 69). Die resultate het gewys dat die Swart professionele vroue laer as verwagte gesondheidsbevorderende gedrag, betekenisvol laer vlakke van fisieke aktiwiteit en betekenisvol ho r vlakke van oorgewig en obesiteit toon as die Suid-Afrikaanse norme. Die waarneming dat die jonger groep diese
Purchasing behaviour as a determinant of food insecurity in Klipplaat

Journal of Family Ecology and Consumer Sciences /Tydskrif vir Gesinsekologie en Verbruikerswetenskappe , 2008,
Abstract: Hierdie studie poog om koopbepalers van voedselonsekerheid onder huishoudings in Klipplaat, in die Oos Kaap, te ondersoek. Eerstens poog die studie om die verhouding tussen huishoudelike inkomstevlakke en voedselonsekerheid in Klipplaat te beraam. Tweedens beoog die studie om vas te stel of daar 'n verhouding bestaan tussen voedselonsekerheid en vervoertipe na winkels vir voedselaankope. Laastens beoog die studie om te bepaal of daar 'n verhouding bestaan tussen voedselonsekerheid en eienaarskap of gebruik van 'n yskas. Die studie maak gebruik van n aangepaste weergawe van die Huishoudelike Voedselonsekerheidtakseringskaal. 'n Gerieflikheidsteekproef (n=459) huishoudings is in Julie 2006 by die studie betrek. Die steekproef is gekenmerk deur ho werkloosheidvlakke (86%) en lae inkomstevlakke (76% met 'n maandelikse inkomste van minder as R500). Beskrywende en afleidende statistiek (ANOVA) is aangewend vir data-afleiding. Sowel praktiese beduidendheid as statistiekbeduidendheid is bepaal vir elk van die hipotetiese vergelykings. Die studie het bevind dat voedselonsekerheid algemeen voorkom in Klipplaat. Inkomstevlakke het 'n beduidende invloed op voedselonsekerheidtoestande in Klipplaat. Daar is verder bevind dat voedselonsekerheid beduidend be nvloed word deur die beskikbaarheid,al dan nie, van doeltreffende vervoer in Klipplaat. Daarby het die gebruik van voedselverkoeling 'n kleiner maar beduidende verband met voedselonsekerheid getoon. Daar is tot die gevolgtrekking gekom dat huishoudings 'n minimum inkomstevlak, kostedoeltreffende vervoer, en verkoeling benodig om voedselon-sekerheid te verlig. (Article text in English)

Systemic isotretinoin in the management of acne – a patient questionnaire survey
S Burger, I Truter, SM Blignault, DJL Venter
South African Family Practice , 2009,
Abstract: Background: The primary aim was to investigate the appropriateness (as outlined in the South African Acne Treatment Guideline1) for the prescription of systemic isotretinoin in the management and counselling of acne in the Nelson Mandela Bay Metropole. Methods: A questionnaire was distributed to patients receiving systemic isotretinoin by 30 community pharmacies. The response rate was 29.2% (57 respondents). Results: The acne medication history revealed that commercial brands of beauty products were used by 57.9% of respondents, topical benzoyl peroxide by 22.8%, and systemic cotrimoxazole by 19.3%. Only nine females used an oral contraceptive as acne treatment prior to isotretinoin. The average daily dose of isotretinoin was 44.2 (SD=16.9) mg. Half of the respondents received a suboptimal cumulative dosage of isotretinoin. The average prescribed duration of isotretinoin therapy was 6.2 months. Adequate counselling was received by only 57.9% of patients. A third of the patients who were able to fall pregnant received recommendations for contraception. Pregnancy tests were conducted in only two females. Just over 40% of patients reported a complete clearance of acne lesions. Conclusions: Many prescribers did not follow the recommendations for isotretinoin prescription. The counselling of patients regarding isotretinoin therapy was substandard, especially with respect to pregnancy prevention.

Intertextuality in the Book of Jubilees
PM Venter
HTS Theological Studies/Teologiese Studies , 2007,
Abstract: The second century BCE Book of Jubilees presents the contents of Genesis-Exodus in a new form. This article studies the techniques used in Jubilees 23. It indicates how Psalm 90:10 was used to link the death of Abraham to a declining-inclining scheme of longevity. This scheme was then combined with a heptadic jubilee scheme. To this the author added a Deuteronomistic retributive scheme of sinpunishment- repentance-salvation. On this combination an apocalyptic framework was finally superimposed.

Die huwelik as identiteitsmerker in die Ou Testament

Abstract: Marriage as identity marker in the Old Testament The formularies used for consecrating marriages in the Nederduitsch Hervormde Church reflect this church's view on matrimony. As the biblical bases of the formularies are deficient, new ways of exploring biblical information on this subject should be followed. This article proposes that data on marriage in the Bible always be used in conjunction with other concepts to form theological constructs to outline who God is and who his people are. It is always intended to be an identity marker to the members of the church. In the three Genesis cycles of Genesis 11:10-25:11; 25:12- 35:29 and 36:1-50:26 heirship, marriage and land are used in an integrated construct to indicate the identity of the post-exilic community in Yehud. In the penitential prayers of Ezra 9:6-15 and Nehemia 9:5b-37 the concepts law, land and marriage are jointly used to depict the identity of the “real” Israel. The conclusion drawn from this investigation is that the Bible does not present models for marriage, but rather theological constructs to understand the relationship with the Lord in metaphorical terms and to reflect on the meaning of everyday life of that relationship including matrimony under ever changing social circumstances.
